After what seems to have been a long, dark and wet winter, the sun is eventually shining and we’re looking forward to starting  the jumping season here at Netheravon on February 1.

Most of our jumpers have been enjoying themselves in sunnier climes, like Portugal and the USA. Our inaugural two weekends will be open to those students who learned to jump in 2019 but have been prevented by weather from continuing, so we will be holding two free Saturday refreshes starting at 0830 for those people so they can be ready for the new season.

Skydiving days this year are every Saturday and Sunday from Feb 1-March 1; from then we will be adding the Friday afternoon and after clock change day it will be every Wednesday and Friday afternoon from 12pm and every Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday from 0800 until last light. Everything from tandem to solo jumping will be available as always and courses are filling up quickly.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and hoping for lots of blue skies for 2020.
